Art Deco Carpet, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: Mid 20th Century — This gorgeous Turkish piece is designed to convey a feeling more than to describe a scene. A rich scarlet border surrounds the carpet, bringing to mind fiery images of passion and action. Within the border is a tan, woody landscape that grounds the piece and allows the vibrant border to stand out even further. Evenly spaced in elegant rows are thin red lines that come together to form sharp and flowing pictures. This depiction of activity helps break the space up and create movement for the eyes to follow.
